Met Éireann Divisions
Aviation Services

Servicing aviation needs under ICAO regulations is one of the most important tasks of Met Éireann. A substantial part of our resources is dedicated to this task, with a corresponding proportion of our budget being recouped on a cost recovery basis through route charges.

The task of this Division is to provide a wide range of meteorological facilities to civil, military and general aviation. The Aviation Services Division comprises the Central Aviation Office at Shannon Airport, together with the meteorological offices at Dublin, Cork and Casement airports. It issues forecasts (TAFs and Local Area Forecasts) for the various airports and smaller airfields in the country as well as local warnings, warnings (Sigmets) for the Irish Flight Information Region (FIR), en-route documentation and briefings.

Meteorological Services for the Defence Forces and meteorological training are provided at Casement Aerodrome.
